Samsung has now confirmed that the cause of their Galaxy Note 7 problems were due to faulty batteries on the handsets with two suppliers and now the company is introducing some new safety measures to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
On future handsets and devices the company will use an 8 point battery safety check to ensure the batteries they use are safer.
Samsung hopes that this case will serve as an opportunity to improve the safety of lithium-ion batteries not only for the company but for the entire industry, and will actively share the lessons learned to contribute toward improved safety standards.
They will also implement a new range of safety measures and safety standards for device hardware. The company has also created a battery advisory group with a range of external advisors.
Samsung is obviously hoping that these new measure will ensure that they do not have any problems with new devices in the future like they did with the Galaxy Note 7.
